Redemption is a Christian Church.  We worship God, we follow Jesus, and we believe the Bible is the Word of God.

We believe in God

There is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ). He is the creator of heaven and earth (Genesis 1:1), and of all living beings. God has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father through creation, as the Son through salvation, and as the Holy Spirit through regeneration.

We believe in Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin. He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.

We believe in the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is God’s Spirit living inside of you. It is powerful (Acts 1:8) and will lead you into all truth. (John 16:13)  We believe every Christian should display the Fruit of the Spirit. (Galatians 5:22-23)  We believe in the Gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12) and believe God’s Spirit is active in the world.

Salvation

Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. (John 3:16)

We can never make up for our sin by good works. We believe salvation comes from faith in Christ alone. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

We are all sinners (Romans 3:23) and in need of salvation.

We believe the proper response to hearing the gospel is to believe, repent, be baptized, and receive. (Acts 2:38)

Great Commission and Calling

We believe every believer is called to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19) and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy and compassion.

Baptism

We believe Baptism is a command from Jesus. (Matthew 28:19) We believe it is for the remission/erasing of sin. (Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16, 1 Peter 3:21)

When we baptize we submerge in water.  We baptize in the name of Jesus (Acts 2:38, Luke 24:47, Acts 19:5, Acts 22:16)

Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14)

Baptism is a celebration that someone has surrendered their life to Christ.

The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:20-21) It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Psalm 119:105)

Eternity

We believe that everyone has an immortal soul.  We believe in heaven and hell. (Daniel 12:2, Matthew 25:46)

To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven.

We choose in this life where we will spend eternity.  Either we live a life separated from God, or a life in union with God.

We want you to go to heaven. If you don’t know that heaven is your home Talk to us.
